Welcome to Gladiator Model Kits.  We are a specialist ''O'' Gauge, 7mm, 1:43 manufacturer. We produce a large range of high quality products suitable for the beginner right the way through to the experienced model builder.

The J25, Q4, Rebuilt Royal Scot, Stanier/Lemon 0-4-4T and Q1/1 kits are now back in stock. The Stanier/Lemon 2p now includes some lost wax brass castings form the Laurie Griffin range. We also now have the J6 available with three different tenders: Stirling D, Ivatt Horeshoe and Ivatt Self-Trimming.

We still have a special offer on the Q1/1 locos.

The first of the 'production' replacement Duchess firebox castings is now in production and if satisfactory, we will have these available this year.

The LNWR range of carriages is now being manufactured and we expect all of these to be available before the Reading Show in December. The 42' radial carriages and all types of the 6w carriage are in stock.

We have received many requests concerning the sale of components. We are happy to do so and are building up stocks. When catalogued we will update this site to show what is available, but if there are specific parts that you require, please let us know.

We have updated the section on instruction copies.

We are still  looking for photos of completed models to use as artwork on the boxes and on this site. If you would like your model to be used, please let us know.

Our locomotive, coach and wagon kits are mainly supplied in 18 thou brass etches with most frames and valve gear in 28 or 22 thou nickel-silver etches. All boilers are supplied pre-rolled and full instructions are included. Castings are lost wax brass and nickel-silver and whitemetal. We also offer a large range of lost wax brass, lost wax nickel-silver, white metal and turned parts for customers who wish to scratch build or indeed upgrade products from other manufacturers.
